“My children have been going to JSA for almost 3 years now. And it’s fantastic. I have just recently started therapy myself. Very comfortable place. “ -
“I look forward to coming to counseling every week with Ashley. She makes my experience with counseling much easier that I had originally thought it would be. She is very easy to talk to, validates my feelings, and offers techniques to make my life easier. The Columbia office has a very homey feel to it which makes counseling that much easier.” -
Terri really knows how to steer me in the right direction.
I am very pleased with the way my first counseling session went with my counselor. I think she will really be able to help me work through some things. I’ve never left a counseling session feeling more at peace, but that is how I felt when I left our session last week.
Terri was very attentive listening as I did much of the talking during my first session. She interjected only a few times as to what possible mitigating factors were involved. I felt comfortable and was able to express myself without fear of judgement.
Penny possesses the utmost respect and empathy! Not only does she hear me out, she provides me the tools necessary to correct the behavior from recurring that I was concerned about :)
Mrs. Hallman is seeing my daughter who is not very social. She has been able to break through her hard shell in a couple of appts.
The office was very welcoming for a first time patient.
Easiest first appointment I've ever had. Instantly felt comfortable and understood.
Jill is incredibly compassionate. She listens very well and has an uncanny knack of being able to help me look at things in a new, helpful light. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to her by a friend. Without a doubt, I would recommend Jill to anyone seeking guidance or help. She is an incredible therapist and even a better person.
This is my first therapy experience and it all was very easy to do and work with. Looking forward to my next session.
She was very down to earth and very relatable!
Thank you so much. You really are the best which is why I chose to come back to you even though you are no longer in my network. I feel comfortable talking to you and trust you. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I am glad I have you to walk with me in this journey--which ever way it goes.

I decided I’m going to be a therapist, too, because of the impact you made on my life. I couldn’t have gone through all that without you by my side. I told mom and dad thank you again for letting me go see Ms. Jill every week. USC Student writing from College dorm
